For more than twenty years, the Cologne native has been intensively involved with the stock market, both professionally and privately. He is particularly passionate about national and international small and micro caps.
He first came into contact with the stock market and shares during his banking apprenticeship. After completing this in 2000, he gained his first journalistic experience in the editorial department of a financial portal. During his subsequent studies in business administration, he also worked in the area of investor relations.
Since then, he has remained true to the capital markets and is excited to report on every newly discovered interesting story - as well as on long-standing success stories.

Electromobility and the energy transition offer numerous investment opportunities along the value chain. Take BYD, for example. The Chinese company is increasingly becoming the e-car market leader. Could they soon even dethrone Tesla? That should make the stock interesting. And what about Varta? The battery manufacturer disappointed investors last year. Is the stock attractive now? Analysts continue to take a critical view of the Company. Almonty Industries is a different story. After the latest half-year figures, the experts at Sphene Capital advise buying. From 2024, sales and profits of the tungsten producer are expected to grow strongly. According to the analysts, the share could triple.Read

While climate activists face criticism for their actions at the Brandenburg Gate, the fight against climate change is gaining momentum with stock market investors. For the courageous, there are always exciting opportunities to enter the market. But there are also problem children. Nel ASA has caused little joy among shareholders in recent months. Can the hydrogen pureplay now herald a turnaround? Nordex is also currently working on a turnaround. With success? Those who entered and exited both stocks early enough could reap significant profits. Such an opportunity could still be ahead for newcomer Klimat X Developments. The specialist in CO2 certificates expects the market to increase tenfold within a few years. So, is it time to invest now?Read

Alarm bells at BYD. The European Commission is investigating the extent to which Chinese e-car manufacturers have received unauthorized subsidies for electric vehicles and can now flood the world market with cheap vehicles. This is weighing on BYD shares, which should actually benefit from the ongoing IAA. In contrast, First Phosphate reports another success. Following the preliminary economic evaluation, tests have now shown that phosphate rock from the Canadians is of high quality and suitable for producing lithium iron phosphate batteries. German chemical giant BASF is also expanding its activities in the battery sector. After setting up a plant in Germany, it is now moving to the United States. But analysts are currently skeptical about the stock.Read

Whether in NOK or EUR, the Nel share chart is severely battered. Does this also apply to the Norwegian company itself? Currently, the answer is somewhat mixed. Nel once again proves that the strategic prospects for hydrogen are huge, but the Norwegian's losses are high, and shareholders must expect dilution. In contrast, GoviEx Uranium is looking good at the moment. The Canadians are the only uranium developer with two African projects ready for development and near-term production. Chart-wise, the stock is turning around, and the market capitalization does not seem too high. Tui is doing well operationally, and the summer season should make the tourism group's cash register ring. Analysts remain divided, however.Read

Hydrogen is considered the future, but is it too early for pure-play stocks to enter? Companies like Plug Power and Nel are expected to continue posting substantial losses for the foreseeable future. Both are valued in the billions, and both will likely have to carry out a capital increase before they reach break-even. By contrast, oil companies are earning brilliantly. Shell prioritizes margin over revenue, which is winning over analysts. Similarly, Cashflow Monster Saturn Oil & Gas is receiving praise from analysts. Their performance in the second quarter was slightly above analysts' expectations. Will the Canadians soon pay a monster dividend?Read

Shares related to the energy and mobility transition have not had it easy in recent months. But will the autumn bring a liberation blow? The negative sentiment could be a good contraindicator. BYD recently published convincing figures. However, analysts foresee fierce competition in the coming years. Plug Power has recently seen its price targets plummet. Does that mean the worst is behind us? At dynaCERT, the AEM electrolyser for green hydrogen is becoming a big seller. More and more industrial companies are testing it. Now, green hydrogen is also expected to contribute to green steel production in Canada.Read

Hydrogen has electrified investors for years. But pure-plays like Plug Power and Nel & Co. are struggling to get their numbers in order and are far from profitable business models. As a result, these shares are not much fun at the moment, and analysts see further downside potential. In such a situation, it is worth taking a look at other megatrend stocks. Redcare Pharmacy (formerly Shop Apotheke) is benefiting from online pharmacy and e-prescription trends. The share has already more than doubled this year. Investors can profit from the cannabis trend with the German Cantourage Group. The Company is growing strongly and the share price has come to rest (before the storm). Both shares are recommended to buy by analysts.Read

Hydrogen and electromobility are megatrends. But not all shares from these sectors deliver what they promise. Nikola has recently disappointed. After the share price multiplied in June and July, it halved in August. And now Nikola has shocked shareholders again. Investors have also been unhappy with Plug Power in recent months. The hydrogen specialist just cannot get a handle on its margins. Is there hope for both again after the recent sell-offs? In contrast, First Hydrogen has surprised on the upside. A customer is enthusiastic about the test of the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle. Will a major order follow now, along with a rediscovery of the stock?Read

The stock market is currently on shaky ground. In such times, it is worth considering stocks that show relative strength. Which renewable energy company falls into this category? Hydrogen specialist Plug Power disappointed again with its latest quarterly figures. And now analysts are also losing patience. In contrast, JinkoSolar has increased its half-year profit by over 300%. However, the shares of the Chinese solar group are trading lower than they have in a long time. The shares of Altech Advanced Materials - also listed on XETRA since July - are among the German stock market stars of 2023 with a plus of 250%. But is there more in store? After all, the Company aims to revolutionize the battery market and even outshine the new Tesla battery.Read

Tension at BYD. Competitor Tesla continues to turn the price screw in China, and there is a surprise in the future topic of autonomous driving. Do the Chinese really not believe in technology in which other companies are investing billions? BYD, on the other hand, is going full throttle with its global expansion and presents a new vehicle. The latest news from First Phosphate also makes for exciting reading. The economic evaluation of the project for the extraction and processing of phosphate for the production of lithium-iron-phosphate batteries has resulted in a capital value of CAD 795 million. This compares with a market capitalization of about CAD 18 million. Nel ASA still brings EUR 1.8 billion to the stock exchange scales. Analysts do not see any upside potential for the Norwegian company.Read
